What is it ?
Swafia Mosque is inviting everyone in the community to our open day. You may be religious or follow no religion, everyone is welcome to come and look around the mosque and ask questions about Islam. You can go on a short tour to see some of the features of the mosque. It will be a general Fun Day of other activities and stalls to raise funds for a very worthy cause.
Maybe you are curious about what goes on inside a mosque. How do Muslims pray ? Why does the mosque have a dome or minarets ? What do Muslim kids learn in the madrassa ? Why do Muslims fast ? What do Muslims say about Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) ? Now is your chance to get your questions answered directly by local Muslims in Wakefield.
It will also be a general Fun Day with a bouncy castle for children, henna tattoos, face painting, and food stalls. Other organisations will have information stands. We’re hoping the great sunny weather will continue so you will be able to make use of the ice cream van.
You could even win some great prizes by taking part in our Tombola draw, as well as contributing towards a great cause, Wakefield Hospice. Some of the proceeds from stalls as well as general donations will go towards Wakefield Hospice.
We will be providing free tea and coffeeand you will be able to sample some food.
Though the day is being hosted at Swafia Mosque we have the help and support from other mosques in putting this day on as a Wakefield Mosques Community Open Day.
You can see some photos from last years Open Day below.
